The total value of the order, if all options are exercised will be approximately $1.2 billion U.S., based on the 2008 list price of typically equipped aircraft.
In addition to the aircraft order, Bombardier also announced today that it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with VistaJet for the sale of Bombardier Skyjet International, its pioneering charter program.
``This is fantastic,`` exclaimed Bob Horner, senior vice-president, sales, Bombardier Business Aircraft. ``An order of this magnitude serves as proof that Bombardier is at the forefront of the industry offering the most innovative aircraft and widest range of travel solutions.

This gross order will effectively triple the size of the existing VistaJet fleet if all options are exercised. The company recently forecast a 50 per cent increase in revenues for this year, with plans of expanding their fleet and opperations, offering more flights to Asia. VistaJet projects approximately 80,000 flight hours for 2012.
With the acquisition of Skyjet International, VistaJet will offer its charter customers access to over 920 business jets worldwide, combining luxury service with a very young Bombardier business jet fleet and the industry leading Jet Member card. VistaJet has been a member of Skyjet International’s elite network of charter providers since 2005.
